What people said about the Live Programme:

" I found David Woods style very easy to listen to. It was not boring at all and even the more complicated portions were covered well. There was a good mix of self-study/reading and listening and watching"

" Webinars were great - good length and topics well differentiated. Quizzes and final case study were a good way of consolidating the learning for each topic."

" I have gained a better understanding of the mechanisms of interactions. I also gained an understanding of how to report an adverse reaction which I did not realise we could do."
